Teachers Gifts

Wow- only 3 more days until Christmas Eve!! And I haven't even wrapped at thing! I thought that today was Ryan's last day of school, but I guess he has tomorrow too, but we are going to skip and go and see Santa! We had the school concert today..Ryan was good and Jake was, well, Jake. If you knew him, you'd know that he is a bit of a character to say the least! We got the Teachers/ Busdriver/ librarian gifts delivered today. I made them all cards (well, duh;) with coffee gift cards inside and homemade caramel sauce that Jen del Muro, the SFYTT girl, so  generously shared. You can find the recipe here. I printed out the recipe on cardstock and decorated it up a bit. I love getting the recipe too whenever I get something yummy!

So here's the inside where I fastened on the gift card sleeve which I jazzed up a bit with ribbon & eyelet and a sentiment punched and adhered to a PTI die. A rhinestone on each end of the die finishes it off.
I had a few more made, but already gave them to the busdriver and Jake's preschool teacher. I think they turned out so cute!!

Stamps: MFT a la mode (coffee girl), My Cute Stamps (cocoa cup), SU (sentiment)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, SU chocolate chip, early espresso
DP: SU (holly jolly)
Ribbon: SU
Other: Copics. Dies- spellbinders (circle, lacey circle), PTI, TCP(snowflake); punches: SU, EK Success, Taylors Tiny Twinkles (TE), dazzling diamonds glitter (SU), Crystal Effects (SU), clear rhinestone brads (SU)

What a fabulous project! Love the way you decorated the jars and the cards are fabulous! Glad to know I'm not the only one who procrasinates about wrapping presents. My kids get really ticked that there are so few presents under the tree until Christmas eve, although this year, they are all wrapped! Looking forward to a relaxing Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
